Former Ghana midfielder, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu says, the Black Stars can do well at the 2023 AFCON if the players get regular game time at their various clubs.
The Black Stars qualified for the next edition of the competition in Ivory Coast after beating Central Africa Republic 3-1 at the Cape Coast Stadium on Sunday, September 7.
Ghana is looking to break a 41-year AFCON trophy drought but Badu believes, players must be in form for the four time African champions to achieve an enviable feat.
“Now we have four month to go what do we need to do, the first option is the players should get playing time at their club sides.
“Because they will not get a lot of time to come and train or to know themselves very well, that is the first priority now and we pray that injuries will not affect us as we saw in the qualifiers.
“We are now building a team and so when you miss certain players at certain stages it means cohesion wise, you will be having difficulties.
“You will only rely on individual brilliance so throughout the qualifiers, you could see that we were not playing that well but we were scoring with individual brilliance.
“So playing time, we hope that injury free and with the quality we have, if we support them, I think we can cause havoc in Ivory Coast.” Agyemang Badu told Radio Gold Sports.
